This document (7015059) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Manager 1.7


Could not run mgr-ncc-sync or any available switches with command. The error in /var/log/rhn/mgr-ncc-sync.log stated:

Downloading NCC data from https://%(authuser)s:%(authpass) using credentials #0
2014/05/13 17:28:02 -07:00 4017 common/suseLib.send('ERROR', "Couldn't resolve proxy 'http'")
NCC connection failed.

Customer had the following in the /etc/rhn/rhn.conf file.
server.satellite.http_proxy =
server.satellite.https_proxy =


Remove http:// and https:// from the following lines:

server.satellite.http_proxy =
server.satellite.https_proxy =

so it reads

server.satellite.http_proxy =
server.satellite.https_proxy =
